3 Easy Crochet hearts in pink color

 

Welcome to the world of crochet, where love takes shape in the form of adorable hearts! Valentine’s Day is close, so it’s a great opportunity to learn how to crochet an easy heart to add a personalized touch to your Valentine’s cards or gifts. 

Whether you’re a seasoned crocheter or a beginner, this step-by-step guide will show you how to crochet a heart effortlessly. Even more, you will learn how to crochet a mini heart pattern in less than 2 minutes!

 

I designed the heart in 3 different sizes: mini, midi and maxi. Each of those can be made by beginners; I simplified the instructions to make it as easy as possible. If you want to make a bunch of them (for your kid’s every schoolmate) you will be surprised how easy these patterns are to memorize!

 My magic hearts measure from 1 ½” to 3”. Your preferred heart size will probably  depend on the project you plan to use it for, e.g. if you have a very small valentine’s card from the Dollar Store or Dollarama, you will go for the tiniest crochet heart possible.

Magic Heart in less than 2 minutes Free Crochet Patterns

 

Each of my 3 crochet heart patterns are based on a magic ring.  It may sound overwhelming if you are a newbie, but there is nothing to worry about.

A magic ring (also called a magic circle or an adjustable ring)  is an easy technique to make a circle with no visible hole inside. It is widely used when making a circle for potholders, doilies or when starting a granny square. A magic circle is an irreplaceable technique for amigurumi toys, allowing the center to be very tight, making all inside stuffing invisible and ensuring a neat and professional finish. To make it easier, I will give you photo instructions on how to make one.

How to Crochet a Heart, Step by Step

Step 1 To start your project, gather the following supplies.

Materials Needed:

  • Yarn – you can use any yarn, but bear in mind that different weights will affect the heart size. I used Super Saver Red Heart Solid in Pretty N’Pink – it’s a worsted weight yarn (medium 4) 
  • Crochet hook: I used size I- 9 (5.5 mm) crochet hook

  • Yarn needle

  • Scissors 

Step 2 Start with a magic ring.

If you don’t know how to make a magic ring, follow the instructions here.

Step 3 Jump to the pattern for the size of heart you want. 

Pick the pattern size according to your needs.
